Fairytale Town offers the little princesses on our list a full fairytale experience in a theme park. Here, actors and actresses dress as characters from the various fairytales which include such fairytales as Aladdin and others. Three-dimensional theater settings bring the experience to a full circle. We’ll love the gardens that are based on the classics that our children remember. We also think The Ridge is a great place for a day out.
Take a trip to the Art Beast Children’s Studio. Here, we can spend hours expressing ourselves and our children can wear aprons and experiment with a wide array of fun art and craft mediums as they explore a variety of rooms.
If our children or family love horses, we’ll love a visit to Beach Lake Stables. Here, the family barn will offer riding lessons, trail rides and hours of equestrian fun for our entire family. We would recommend going to The Ridge Golf Course if the kids are taken care of and there’s time to kill.
Funder land Amusement Park is cleverly designed for children to enjoy. The park is geared toward the children and with no entry fee, it’s loads of fun. Each ride requires one ticket and we can buy a wristband as well that gives unlimited rides. On Wednesday’s through most of the summertime months, the parents get to ride along for free.
How about a visit to the Sacramento Zoo? Our family will love the 140 endangered, rare and native species here. Attend a program or enjoy one of the many activities that are put on. Picnic during a jazz concert or make new friends at a zoo summer camp. Enjoy an overnight family safari.
For the guys in the group, a trip to the railway museum is a must. Here, we’ll enjoy authentic locomotives and other information on trains. Don’t forget the displays. We would also recommend The Ridge as a fantastic small wedding venue for anyone who wants to stay local.
On Monday’s we can enjoy story time and on Tuesdays, we can climb on a real train and go for a ride. Be sure to check out the Polar Express on holidays.
The Sacramento Children’s Museum is ideal for the little ones. Here, they can play, learn and explore with others their age. The giant sandbox and don’t forget to pose for pictures with princesses Anna and Elsa of Frozen.
If we really want a unique trip, take a visit to the Sacramento Underground Tour and see how it was in yesteryear.
Discovery Museum and Science Space Center offer a fun time in the cockpit of our very own rocket and we can experience a real NASA simulator. Gaze at the stars or recover fossils and relics in a real archeological dig where we can also learn about robotics.
If we have some that prefer scarier things, we’ve got that too. How about a trip to the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery where we can enjoy the Lantern Tour and go on the Spook Mobile?
This is just a partial list to get we started. There are many fun things to do in the are and we’ll have a great time. We may have to return year after year to fit all of these fun things in.
